REVIEW:

Disc One is Foxes in the Box vol.4, Disc Two is a copy of I Want You To Hear This, Disc Three audio from Mad Lad tv appearances and Disc Four copy of radio show Live at Electric Ladyland from the 1992 Slide on Live Tour.

Disc One presents tracks recorded by Ron Wood for his Gimme Some Neck album, which at first came out online as Foxes In The Boxes Vol.4 (JEMS). The disc starts with the second version of Breakin’ My Heart that features more guitars and finished vocals, followed by Lost And Lonely which is longer than the officially released version and, thanks God, with less stereo effects; conversely Worry No More is shorter and has less overdubbed guitar parts. We All Get Old is longer too presenting an early mix, Seven Days does not have Keith Richards backing vocals, I Got Lost When I Found You does not seem to be that different from the released take. F.U.C. Her is an early mix, like Don’t Worry which lacks Bobby Keys overdubbed sax part. On Infekshun can be heard Jagger’s backing vocals as well as different guitars riffs. Tiger Balm is heard here for the very first time, a completely unknow outtake that shows a song that could easily have made it to the released album and features a nice organ from Ian McLagan. Buried Alive is a longer early take lacking Richards overdubbed guitars, same for Come To Realize that has no backing vocals. This disc ends with the first take of Breakin’ My Heart which is, obviously, an early version featuring a prominent organ. For my taste these songs are marred by the bad production of Roy Thomas Baker (like the finished album) with bad sounding drums that sound similar to hitting a cardboard box. Anyway, since they are out for the first time on silver, apart from the usual Japan no label releases like Gimme Some Neck Rough Mixes or Gimme Some Neck Early Mixes (Moonchild Rec.020), I suppose they are interesting for collectors.

Disc Two presents a copy of I Want You To Hear This, a cd that was officially released in 2011 in a box containing also the reproduction of Ron Wood art prints; three tracks, called The Early Sessions, were originally released in lossy format only in Australia/Japan through i-tunes but then there is a song out for the first time (Plating With My Mind) with Kelly Jones from Stereophonics and a live version of Worried Life Blues recorded with Ben Waters for the Boogie For Stu album that features Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and Mick Taylor. Next come some bonus tracks, the first (Richmond) from the Faces Longplayer album that lacks the bass, then 3 songs from Mahoney’s Last Stand, a soundtrack Ron Wood wrote with Ronnie Lane in 1972, but ended in the spring of 1976 that feature the help of  Bobby Keys as well as Stu and P.Townshend/K.Jones respectively for the first 2 tracks. Dead Giveaway is a song from Ringo Starr Stop And Smell The Roses album. The next song was released on the Wild Life soundtrack album and is credited to Charlie Sexton featuring Keith Richards in a remake of a Stones 60s tune, originally on Aftermath. Must Be Love was recorded in Ireland in 1991 for Slide on This, which Wood co-produced with B. Fowler. This disc ends with a bunch of tracks from 11 and 12 December 2001 played live in London. The last two Shepherd’s Bush tracks were released on Far East Man a live DVD in 2002, only on Jealous Guy (audience sourced), however, there is Slash, while he is there for the CC Club songs, that are all audience sourced. Disc Three has 2019 Wood solo activities including tracks performed at the BBC in shows hosted by Jo Whiley and Jools Holland plus as extra a live version of Dance featuring Mick Jagger from a 2005 concert which was professionally filmed, bur here in audience quality. Disc Four presents the first 10 tracks that come from a radio show whose content was broadcasted live by WNEW FM and then officially released in 2000 on the Album Live and Electric plus 5 more tracks taken from The Rhythm Café, San Diego (soundboard) and The Ritz, New York 1992 (audience) concerts; the funny thing being that the Ritz tracks were released in audience quality on the Live and Electric album which makes it hard to believe it was a legitimate release. There is nothing shockingly rare on this release, however the inclusion of Gimme Some Neck rough rough tapes is interesting and deserves a mention.
